Vroom in, vroom out
Hellooo.. it’s a bright morning here in Cape Town. I didn’t want to fly on a weekend but Vijjy insisted I be here with him.. even if its for 24 hours. I relented. He will be here for the rest of an on-going cricket series.. that’s the only thing he follows apart from me. I’ll be back at my abode tomorrow. While I sip my piping hot green tea, here’s some Cinemapore goss.. just for your eyes and ears.. straight from the Cape of Good Hope.

Now, I’ve been hearing so much about a certain blue filmmaker that the next mention if him will give me nausea. It’s something about Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Talks about his Chenab Gandhi have been going on since I was a kid. I heard my most favourite biker John Abraham was going to do the project. The nayanavela buzz is that bikerji has withdrawn from the project.

My birdie from Neelkamal’s camp SMSed me that the reason for the man’s decision is to do with his girlfriend of seven years.. Bipasha Basu. Basubabe is not exactly upbeat about her man’s pairing with Vidya Balan.

The last time they were paired for a movie, there were rumours of a romance. Smart gal that Bipsy is.

Love, actually
Now, I’m being told by all and sundry that Deepika Padukone is breathing fire. Reason: Madhu my Mottu Maid wrote that she..

Deepika not Mottu guys.. was calling Mahendra Singh Dhoni and dostana was brewing between them.. and Ranbir Kapoor was getting insecure. “So what?” Moi shrugged.

But according to my lovey dovey Kapoor boy and his premika, they are much in love and there’s no third person in between and neither is he insecure.

Hmm, I’m convinced they are in love. So Mottu, be ready for a hundred push-ups holding your ears.

Such Cartabs!
What’s with the world? Haven’t they heard about the naam bade aur darshan chhote funda? I’m sure they haven’t. If they did, they wouldn’t be surprised at a carnama did by Ajay Devgan at a multiplex in Mumbai. Herobabu went with his laadli Nysa and biwi Kajol to watch Aliens V/s Monsters.

After the movie, AD made a hue and cry, “Where’s my car?” He sent the place in a frenzy of sorts.

Turns out that the car was not a Mercedes or anything close to it.

It was a small Hyundai i10. Hmm.. and I thought he could afford a bigger car. Maybe it’s the after-effect of the slowdown. Hota hai AD teddy!

Hey ramp!
Oi, what’s this? I’m hearing that a certain actress, Udita Goswami (is she around?), is on cloud nine these days. So? I’m told she’s been roped in as a showstopper at a fashion show of a cosmetic brand, which belongs to a pharma company owned by one-time kalakaar Anuj Saxena.

Fianlly, she’ll get some recognition. I hope so at least. Now it’s to be seen how many heads turn when this nearly-extinct actress hits the head ramp. Ram pum pum..

Point noted
Okay, Mottu had the audacity to call me. I didn’t want to hear from her but she insisted on filling my ears with something on an old filmmaker Shekhar Kapur. Quiet Mottu.. I’m not into older men.

The older men like me though. Anyway, she says that the filmkar has been writing spiritual notes on some Chehrakitaab site everyday and has too many people giving it a thumbs up. I don’t give such news a thumbs up babe.. his life and his space Mots. Mots doesn’t listen.. but then such is life dearies.
